1: How did you decide on the name, “Radattack”?
It’s honestly hard to remember. I knew I wanted something immediate and like an onomatopoeia speech bubble in a comic book, that would look good if a character was shouting it.
2: What inspires you to create?
Discovering new music, live music, books, painting, drawing and riding my bike.
3: What advice would you give to someone who wants to be in a creative profession?
The only one who should be making decisions concerning your art is you. Don’t let other people’s opinions sway you from satisfying the true nature of what you really want to create.
4: Do you feel open minded about what you listen to? Do you like going out of your comfort zone?
Yes! I love going out of my comfort zone. I just recently started listening to a lot more jazz which I hadn’t really given a chance before.
5: What outlets do you find out about music from? (Record stores, magazines, samplers, etc.)
I find music from my friends and interviews with artists I like, I also follow a few curators on YouTube that post gems every once and a while.
6: How do you think the internet has impacted the music business?
It’s totally leveled the playing field. Everyone has to be more versatile now. It’s also putting the numbers right in the artists face, which can be a little unhealthy for your relationship to your art.
7: Do you have any hobbies outside of music?
Biking. And I’ve been trying to get better at watercolors.
8: What motivates you to check out a new artist?
The style of their graphics, like super cool record covers.
9: Who was the first band/artist that became your favorite band?
10: What was the inspiration for your song “Get Gone”?
“Get Gone” is about someone that can’t get back to the way they’ve felt in the past towards someone else, and kind of the hopelessness of that feeling.
